Hezbollah has effectively taken over West Beirut. Unless, the Lebanese government gets some external support I don't think there's much to prevent Hezbollah from taking over the country. But it hasn't been forthcoming. Saudi Arabia, which has supported the Lebanese government in the past, is calling on Prime Minister Siniora to resign. The Cedar Revolution seems now such a distant memory.
